Antony Matheus dos Santos is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a winger for Manchester United and the Brazil national team.
He was born on February 24, 2000, in Osasco, São Paulo, Brazil, and grew up in Inferninho, a favela far from the city center.
Antony is a left-footed winger who plays from the right side and whose natural instinct is to attack inwards on his stronger foot.
He plays a lot of his football on the right-wing and is found on the right-wing wide enough and often enough to be considered a winger by right.
Antony won a gold medal with the Brazil under-23 team at the 2020 Summer Olympics and made his senior international debut and scored against Venezuela in October 2021, going on to represent Brazil at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
He has been involved in a controversy as his ex-girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin alleged him of domestic violence, which led to the player being dropped from Brazil’s national squad.
